Billy Ruane Memorial Birthday Bash Middle East Downstairs Cambridge, Massachusetts November 17, 2010
Core Sound Binaural mics > Edirol R-09 from about 10 feet from center stage.
It turned out that I had an intermittent mic connection problem; edited out some of the more egregious noise but there are clicks and pops here and there. A particularly nasty patch during Lady Lamb's last song, "Beluga," natch. It was an incredibly moving show and I feel honored to have been in the audience.
